Reviews

Perfect couple Steve (David Duchovny) and Kate Jones (Demi Moore), and their gorgeous teen-aged children Jenn (Amber Heard) and Mick (Ben Hollingsworth), are the envy of their posh, suburban neighborhood filled with McMansions and all the trappings of the upper middle class American life. Kate is the ultimate trend setter - beautiful, sexy, dressed head-to-toe in designer labels. Steve is the admired successful businessman who has it all: a gorgeous wife, big house and an endless supply of high-tech toys. Jenn and Mick rule their new school as they embody all that is hip and trendy - cool clothes, fast cars and the latest gadgets. But as their friends and neighbors try to keep up with the Joneses, none are prepared for the dark truth about this all too perfect family.

Format: DVD
The title of my review should instantly tell you that this is NOT a comedy. If you watch it thinking it is a comedy, you will be sorely disappointed, as some of the other reviewers were.

This is really more like a modern-day parable about family, money, possessions and friends.

About 5 minutes into the film, I said to my wife 'We know that they aren't real, what's the story?', thinking I was going to be bored out of my wits for the next hour and a bit. Thankfully I didn't give up so quickly and actually found it a very intriguing film.

It does not drag at all but moves at a decent pace for a film that fits squarely in the philosophical drama category.

The characters are all played well and I found myself being empathetic towards them by the end of the film. They are, as you would imagine from people living a fake life, quite one dimensional. Even 'behind closed doors' Demi and David's characters do not change very much, but you can see them reaching out for reality.

I really liked this film. It is a great parable and with the right group of friends it could stir some interesting discussions.

If you like films that make you stop and think even for a short while, then this will do that. If you are looking for a comedy, then 'Did you hear about the Morgans?' Did You Hear About The Morgans? [DVD] [2009]might be a better choice.

hope that helps

I first watched this film because it was avaliable as a cheap rental download, but having seen it once I went on to buy the DVD to share with friends and family. I don't want to give away too much about the plot, but the premise is so clever it will leave you wondering if there could be any truth in the concept and questioning how much of what you buy is really needed or just purchased because your friends have one...

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER on 8 Jun 2013
Format: DVD
The starts out with the perfect family moving onto a posh community. Their home is perfect and they have all the high tech gadgets to the envy of all their neighbors. However you start to realize not everything is normal behind the scenes as the parents sleep in separate bedrooms. When the daughter sneaks into her dad's bedroom (brief nudity) mom has to drag her out.

The "secret" we find out about 20 minutes into the movie is that this family is a plant and not really a family. Their job is to make friends with everyone and show off the products so others will buy them. Their success is measured by how much luxury stuff their neighbor's buy to keep up with them. The real story comes as their perfect world unravels during a music montage as their own life gets in the way of their facade.

The acting is good with strong performances by all the main characters. Today, computer companies do this type of thing by placing a shill in someplace like Starbucks pretending to be a regular guy when they are actually trying to soft sell a laptop.

The movie is amusing, but not laugh out loud funny. It is heart warming, but doesn't make you cry. It moves along at a good pace. A good one to have in your collection.

Format: DVD
The Joneses are a family of extremely successful and fashion-orientated individuals, always at the forefront of the new fashions and trends. At least that's how it looks from the outside. Secretly all of the members of the family are completely unrelated and are recruited to pose as a family unit to inspire their new neighbours in the very affluent neighbourhood they have just moved into to envy what they have, the seemingly blissful ideal of perfection. As they 'inspire' their new friends and co-workers to want what they have, whether it's the latest car, the new designer sweatsuits or even the performance enhancing driver, their numbers are closely watched & measured by the corporation responsible for overseeing the 'stealth-marketing' initiative. When 'keeping up with the Joneses' bankrupts one of his new-found friends (Gary Cole - Office Space), Steve (David Duchovny) begins to question the morality of his job and what he really wants out of life.

I was captivated by this film from beginning to end as it has such a decent premise; the power of the word of mouth effect. By posing as affluent & immensely successful individuals they capture their neighbours aspirations and become the trendsetters effectively driving the market for the clothes they wear and cars they drive. This alone would be enough for a great film, but couple this with the drama unfolding behind the polished facade, some exciting on-screen chemistry between Duchovny and Demi Moore, an 'in-the-closet' actor playing the high-school jock son (Ben Hollingsworth) and a nymphomaniac daughter (the stunning Amber Heard) makes for a truly great cinematic experience.

Format: Blu-ray
A false family of conmen and conwomen move into an affluent American suburb and systematically fleece the gullible neighbours into purchasing products they're contracted to flog (David Duchovny and Demi Moore star). Cue all manner of ducking and diving and greed corrupting everything it touches...

"The Joneses" is kept interesting by a brilliant script that keeps the lead characters losing their souls a little bit more each and ever day. Their cleverness stops being fun and soon everything (including growing love) is sabotaged by money. Will they see the error of their capitalistic ways?

I loved “The Joneses” and both Duchovny and Moore are perfectly cast as the sexy go-getter couple that seem to have it all (and therefore they know their neighbours will covet this).

This is the kind of movie I wish I could keep up with – but unfortunately “The Joneses” did little business on this side of the pond. So it's not surprising to see that a ‘UK’ BLU RAY of it is AWOL. I say this because the American 20th Century Fox version is REGION A LOCKED – so it will not play on UK machines unless they’re chipped to be ‘all regions’ (which few are).

Until someone sees fit to release it on a REGION B title - this is another nugget denied us by Region Coding…
